Sri Lankan cricketer Nuwan Kulasekara has been arrested and released on bail after he was involved in a fatal road accident.

The accident occurred on Monday when the car Kulasekara was driving collided with a motorbike, killing the rider on the spot.

Citing initial investigations, Sri Lanka Cricket said the motorbike rider had lost control while trying to overtake a bus and was flung into Kulasekara’s path.

The 34-year-old seam bowler last played for Sri Lanka in March in a World T20 game against the West Indies and had been overlooked for the tour of England and the home series against Australia that followed.

In June, he announced his retirement from Test cricket after 21 matches to concentrate on one-day internationals and Twenty20 games.
